“Newer isn’t always better, especially when it comes to good design.”
For its Design|Life issue, Wired Magazine picked out 12 objects that have stood (and should stand) the test of time. The editorial team has of course included uncontested classics like Eames Molded Fiberglass Chair and Joe Colombo’s optic alarm clock from 1970, but you will also see some newer “retro modern” classics like Swatch’s Sistem 51 watch and Nike’s updated Air Max 1.
